The town of Bacharach has several distinctive steep slopes. According to an old saying the best wines are grown in Bacharach, and Pope Pius II had a barrel of Bacharach wine delivered to Rome every year. But there is also a very flat vineyard. It is situa- ted on a 680 by 150 metre island in the Rhine and is called “Heyles’en Werth” after its former owner Hans Heyles. Today the island is cultivated by a winemaking family from Bacharach. They do not only need strong legs like the steep slope vintners but also muscular arms as the island can only by reached by rowing boat.

Sommeliers, wine connois- seurs, and people liv- ing in the growing areas know that there is an appropriate glass for every type of wine. In Württemberg, this is a very strange receptacle: a glass mug. The only wine glass without a stem has a convenient handle on its side and is mostly used in the traditional wine taverns. In gen- eral, the inhabitants of Württemberg drink more wine than the people in all the other regions in Germany.
